for israel, has served nearly three decades in a u.s. prison and there have been protests in israel this week demanding his release. before his middle east trip, president obama was asked about pollard in an interview with israel's channel 2. >> this is an individual who committed a very serious crime here in the united states. he's been serving his time. i have no plans for, you know, releasing jonathan pollard immediately. but what i am going to be doing is to make sure that he, like every other american who has been sentenced, is, you know, accorded the same kinds of review. >> this is the story i've covered from day one. in 1989 i even wrote a book about it, "territory of lies." jonathan pollard was a civilian analyst for u.s. naval intelligence with access to some of this country's most important secrets. he started passing some of those secrets to an israeli operative, receiving monthly cash payments. in 1985 he was questioned about the removal of classified documents and was placed under surveillance, but pollard and his then wife anne were arrested after trying and failing to gain ent

of points. >> take your time. [laughter] >> the bush library opens next week, and i believe as people look at his record compared to president obama's record, it will stack up very well, and history will be kind to him. in terms of governor romney, there are things the campaign did wrong. there is a lot of reflection on that. i think governor romney would have made a good president, and i would say also in terms of lessons learned, one of the lessons i learned is instead of being bad guy who leaves your happy home and wife and children and moves to a strange town for five months and lives in a studio apartment with a bed in the middle of the living room, to work on a campaign, the next time i will be the guy who complains about that got on attended a vision. that is a better place to be. coupleot overlook a things. it is difficult to be a sitting president. also one of the things we need to take to account and the report does is republican parties in five of the last six elections has not won the majority of the boats or a plurality of the boat. there were mistakes, but there is a trend he
at the end of the week to try to lay the groundwork with benjamin netanyahu and israel to start some talks. president obama is here to, as he said, listen. he said in the press conference yesterday that his main role in this visit is to just listen to the palestinians. it's a lesson he learned from his mom, he said, because the palestinian palestinians often feel that they are not heard. and so he really wants to see what kind of mood there is now and what it would take to really prod some sort of discussion to come into action. and, you know, they felt a little bit neglected and it's the president's time to remind him that even though he has been working very closely with the israelis, he has not forgotten that he wants to create some sort of open space for peace talks to come into fruition with secretary kerry now at the state department. >> very interesting you bring up secretary kerry. a second ago, jess, we saw president obama greeting secretary of state john kerry on the tarmac there. the secretary of state arrived in the region before the president. he will be in the region again ju

for conservatives, dr. ben carson has been out front a little bit. dr. ben carson was a political unknown weeks ago. with a single speech, as president obama looked stoneleigh on -- host: that is just a little bit of the profile. covered cpacspan and the national prayer breakfast. if you want to watch dr. ben carson, go to the video library. bookse also covered his on you can also watch them on booktv. he would be appearing in the later this year on our booktv in-depth program. you will get the chance to talk with him at that point. moneys usa today's section -- two more articles from the wall street journal -- host: and this other article in the wall street journal -- host: last call comes from david in new jersey. you are on the air. caller: good morning. i think the phrase here is my enemy's enemy is my friend. it appears a lot of countries across the world are abdicating any security they have. it is almost an expectation that we're going to come in and straighten out their messes. choose -- truthfully, it seems that is what we all -- that is all we ever do. i think that we have kin

, this is charlie rose. >> rose: the syrian conflict reached new levels this week. the assad regime and the syrian opposition groups accused of each other of using chemical weapons. the allegations were made only hours before president obama's departure to israel yesterday. the white house has yet to verify the claims but lawmakers are increasingly calling for action. here's what presidentbama said eaier day in a joint press conference with israeli prime minister netanyahu. >> with respect to chemical weapons, we intend to investigate thoroughly exactly what happened. obviously, in syria right now, you've got a war zone. you have information that's filtered out. but we have to make sure that we know exactly what happened, what was nature of the incident, what can we document, what can we prove. i've instructed me teams to work closely witll oer countries in the region, and international organizations, and institutions to find out precisely whether or not this red line was crossed. i will note without at this point having all the facts before me, that we know the syrian government has the capacity
will tell you why. see what bob beckel thinks about it then michele bachmann says that barack obama is running a lavish white house. spending an incredible amount of tax money on himself. is that true? factor is coming right back. >> bill: earlier this week 8 marines were killed. seven others injured. senator reid from that state quickly exploited the issue angering the marine corps. >> this sequester should go away. we have cut already huge amounts of money and deficit reduction. it's just not appropriate, mr. president. that our military can't train and do the maintenance necessary. these men and women our marines were training there in hawthorne and with the sequester it's going to cut the stuff back. >> can i tell you marine corps officials this afternoon are taking a strong exception to what harry reid implied, saying that this exercise, for example, was planned well in advance had nothing to do with the bucket -- budget cuts, there were no corners cut. >> bill: this is what i object to. reid is exploiting the death of these marines who were just out in nevada because that terr
'll know if president obama's trip was a success or kind of a waste of time? >> reporter: could actually be a couple weeks and maybe even longer than that. it's true, what prime minister netanyahu said about preconditions, about what he's prepared to do, what he's prepared to give away is more important than anything we've heard in public. the same. did president abbas say he's worked something out with hamas, where maybe he can get some progress made, we don't know. we're not in the private meeting. and we won't know that at least for some time. secretary of state kerry will stay behind. everybody believes if you tried to force the parties back to the table tomorrow, it would be counterproductive. you have to do some preliminary work first. so let's check back in two weeks, maybe two months. if there's no peace process in a month or two, carol, you could say the president failed, at least in the short-term. but don't expect something by tomorrow or in the very near future. >> i don't think anyone does, john. you don't have to worry about that. thank you so much, john king, reporting liv
there. by the way, it never gets old. she's the best. >>> next, early this week i showed you this picture of the satan character from the history channel's mini series "the bible." during the broadcast, twitter exploded with comments about how the character looked like president obama, though the network immediately denied that the resemblance was intentional. rick wiles agrees that the film mashs did not go out and make satan to look like president obama, but still says it was on no accident. >> i don't believe these intentional portrayed the lucifer character to look like mr. obama. i think god guided the hands of the makeup artist and blinded the eyes of everybody on the movie set while it was being recorded, and the spiritual blinders were removed sunday night when the program was broadcast nationally on the history channel. >> how is that for an explanation of free will? that tops michele bachmann saying hurricane irene was a sign from god to cut government spending. hmm. speaking of her, you know how she's celebrating the third anniversary of the affordable care act, ob
's what president obama was saying. that struck me, especially his use of ariel sharone's quote. the other interesting thing was he mentioned passover that's coming up next week, and he talked about the story of passover and what was important about that is he was talking about the ancient centuries old claim of jews to the holy land. a lot of arabs do not believe that israel has any right to be there, so it's very important to israelis and jews who support israel that there be some sort of context of a historical claim to the land. those were very interesting moments, i thought. >> jake, i want to switch gears here. a little bit awkward, but you just sat down with jimmy kimmel, who's about to get a new late night rival. anything -- what's going on here? >> well, it's interesting. we went to l.a. and sat down with jimmy kimmel. there are now reports they've been brewing for several weeks, that jimmy fallon will replace jay leno when his contract is up in 2014. i asked him about it, if we have that clip. >> already there's talk about mr. leno's departure, although i've read those stories be
through committee was driven by people to the left of president obama. i know this, last year the chairman of the budget committee, kent conrad, was prepared to bring a budget to the floor. my staff and i, we spent weeks preparing for the markup. they met in the democratic conference, and some of the more liberal members hollered that they couldn't accept kent conrad's budget, the democratic budget he was going to set forth. and so they basically refused to let him mark up a budget in the budget committee and refused to bring it to the floor of the united states senate, even though the united states law called for the budget committee to have a hearing and called for a bill to be brought to the floor. and just refused to do it in violation of plain law. so the "wall street journal" said the bill manages the unique achievement of offering no net non-defense spending cuts and no entitlement reform worth the name while proposing to raise $1.5 trillion in new tax revenue in such a way that would ruin the prospects for bipartisan tax reform. let me stop right there. our colleagues keep saying w
the privilege of having dinner with the president a couple weeks ago. i found it very interesting that president obama accurately described the problem in reforming medicare. he said, the problem is that americans pay in $1 but they get $3 worth of benefits. he also went on to say, we've got a problem because most americans don't understand that. well, today i'm asking on the president, i'm asking members on the other side of the aisle to join with republicans to honestly describe the problem to the american public. i mean, you don't solve a problem until you first define it and then, secondly, admit that you have the problem. we have severe problems with social security, with medicare, with other mandatory spending, with other budget. until we come to terms with that, until we are honest with the american people, stop pulling the wool over their ey eyes, we have no chance whatsoever of solving these very severe problems. so with that, i yield back my time, mr. president. ms. stabenow: mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from michigan. ms. stabenow: thank you, mr. president. i'll b
will stay open for a week if anyone would like to submit initial statements or questions. the meeting is adjourned. thank you all. unconfirmed reports accuse the syrian government of using chemical weapons against rebel fighters. president obama commented on these reports during his trip to israel. >> with respect to chemical weapons, we intend to investigate thoroughly exactly what happens. obviously syria right now you have a war zone. you have information that is filtered out, but we have to make sure that we know exact to what happened, what was the nature of the incident, what can we document and what can we prove so i've instructed my teams to work closely with all of the countries in the region and international organizations and institutions to find out precisely whether or not this red line was crossed. i will note without at this point having all the facts before me, that we know the syrian government has the capacity to carry out chemical weapons acts. we know that there aren't those in the syrian government who have expressed a willingness to use chemical weapons if necess
